I find the bonding in a family occurs through the comfort found in repetitive action. Attending church regularly, eating together at the same time daily, always vacationing the second week of June, etc... Family can provide stability in an unstable world. I don't pretend that all families are perfect but I am hoping that we can all strive to make ours a little more perfect. The family unit is one of the first areas that I learned the concept of forgiveness.
One of the greatest things that can be done to honor Mothers on this Mother's Day is to maintain family. When The Fitzpatrick Hotel was reestablished in 2004 one of our goals was to be a family and community focused business. We would like to renew this pledge this Mother's Day and wish everyone a Happy Mother's Day.
